Climb the slabby wall left of Klute, past several poor breaks to some large blocks. Continue straight via cracks and flakes to a resting place below a short steep groove. From here you could simply top out on the right, but don't; fix some gear and pull strenuously into the groove to sinker holds and an easy finish.

The rightward escape, avoiding the top groove.

Cop out exit of shame. Struggled to recover at pre-crux rest, had a good go but put foot on R ledge and succumbed to weakness of character. Felt steep and not particularly positive.

got to top section without problems - but fortunately lots of water in hanging groove - so moved over to klute to finish - looks really hard at the top - really nice climbing up to that point...

A repeat but I'd not led it before.

The yew right on the edge isn't ideal for belay/ab, and most will probably choose to use the larger yew a few metres upslope. Trouble is - if you ab from the higher tree there's a loose killer block over which the ropes run. Be warned!

Did we, didn't we??? Messed up due to gorgeous looking lead not finding way of Klute, which was the one we started on. But didn't mind because this one turned out to be nice anyway!

Spent too long faffing with gear in the upper groove and got pumped. Will have to return for the clean lead - it's a good route.
